Filmmaking workshop

The Filmmaking workshop will show you how to film your own productions, whether you want to make a short film, a skate boarding/sport video or even a music video for your band. With technological advances in digital cameras making your own mini master pieces has never been easier or more accessible.

The workshops can take place on one day, or several, and are aimed providing an introduction to filmmaking. Alternatively on six-week courses you can plan and make your own film which gives you more hands on experience in camera operating and editing. You will learn about the various roles in filmmaking and what they involve. You will get technical support on the practical work and will leave with a professionally finished DVD or video of your work.
